This Lenten devotional, first created by the Rev. Tim Schenck on his blog, "Clergy Family Confidential," allows readers to learn about and vote for the saints presented daily on the website, with the winning saints moving closer to the coveted prize of the Golden Halo. 

"I was looking for a fun way to embrace the Lenten season," said Schenck, rector of St. John's Episcopal Church in Hingham, Mass.

"Lent doesn't have to be all doom and gloom," said Schenck. His goal, he says, is to help people "connect with the risen Christ during this season" and to "have a bit of fun in the process."

Ah, it's Episcopal; now it makes sense.   How on earth does voting for one's favorite saint help one "connect with the risen Christ"?

Man trendy BS.  The church makes the trends, the world changing revelations not revolutions. We dont follow secular ones for Pete's sake.
